Upcoming event: J. K, George in conversation with Cari Clark about his novel, Contact Sport, Wednesday June 14th 2017

Jim George has been an avid amateur radio enthusiast, with special love for Morse code and radiosporting, since his teenage years, over fifty years ago. He started his hobby listening to short-wave broadcasts and long-distance AM radio stations. He is a graduate of Virginia Tech, where he was president of the VT Amateur Radio Club and was inducted into the Virginia Tech Academy of Engineering after serving as Chair of the Advisory Boards for both Electrical and Computer Engineering, as well as the College of Engineering. He is an avid Virginia Tech sports fan. He completed his graduate school at Arizona State University, specializing in semiconductor materials physics.

George's professional career was primarily at Motorola, where he worked in the semiconductor business for nearly forty years and served as corporate vice president for nearly fifteen years. Following his retirement, George was a founding member and served for several years on the advisory board for KUT-FM, the public radio station of the University of Texas at Austin. George enjoys reading and writing and has been a member of a small men's book club in Austin for over a decade. He and his wife live in the Hill Country west of Austin, and have three grown children and five grandchildren.

His first book was Reunion, a novel about a difficult relationship between a father and son, as well as life-long friendships within a unique high-school peer group.

Contact Sport is a wonderful book, written not only for knowledgeable amateur radio operators, but also for their children and grandchildren, to open the wonders of science and radio magic to all ages.
